"I always thought those underpasses were aluminium decking, but I could be wrong. They certainly sound metallic if you walk across them in cleats."

"it's fire damage & the aluminium planks either melted or the fire was hot enough to ignite them too. Hopefully the structure itself is undamaged otherwise it might be closed for a while."
